Comparing Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite: Problems with Excel Online

Advantages and disadvantages only show up in practice

You want the best software solutions for your enterprise, but what’s the most sensible approach to going about comparing them? Both solutions promise similar benefits and are shown to work well in similar use cases within your company, so how do you choose which one to go with?

For me, it's all about getting to know them, working with them, and trying each software solution out in realistic situations. This is the only way to reveal the software’s potential -- as well as those ‘aha’ moments -- while also discovering the problem areas and disadvantages of the software.

That’s what I’m aiming to do in our current video series: I put Office 365 to the test, trying out different tools and functions, and I compare them to my experiences with Google G Suite.

It's not a matter of badmouthing Office 365 or singing its praises. Instead, what I want to point out are the real problems that the software brings with it, especially from the user's point of view.

In this video I work with Excel in detail and I’ve found a new challenge with their online templates. But before I get into such specific features, I'll take a brief detour in order to take a closer look at one of Microsoft's rather revealing business practices. Here's our newest video comparing Office 365 with G Suite:
